Mary Tyler Moore - Season 4

( 8 )

Overview

The big news of The Mary Tyler Moore Show's fourth season is the introduction of a new regular: Betty White as Sue Ann Nivens, the host of WJM-TV's "Happy Homemaker" household-hints show. Outwardly sweet and Pollyanna-ish, Sue Ann is actually the most predatory female in all of Minneapolis, targeting Lars Lindstrom, the never-seen husband of supercilious Phyllis Lindstrom Cloris Leachman as her latest sexual conquest in the season's Emmy-winning opening episode, "The Lars Affair." It takes the eleventh-hour ...

Overview

The big news of The Mary Tyler Moore Show's fourth season is the introduction of a new regular: Betty White as Sue Ann Nivens, the host of WJM-TV's "Happy Homemaker" household-hints show. Outwardly sweet and Pollyanna-ish, Sue Ann is actually the most predatory female in all of Minneapolis, targeting Lars Lindstrom, the never-seen husband of supercilious Phyllis Lindstrom Cloris Leachman as her latest sexual conquest in the season's Emmy-winning opening episode, "The Lars Affair." It takes the eleventh-hour intervention of Mary Richards Mary Tyler Moore, associate producer of WJM's "Six O'Clock News," to prevent Sue Ann from adding Lars to her male harem. Subsequent Season 4 episodes constitute some of The Mary Tyler Moore Show's best and most memorable efforts. These include another Emmy winner, "The Lou and Edie Story," in which Mary's boss, Lou Grant Edward Asner, goes into a deep funk over the breakup of his marriage to wife Edie Priscilla Morrill; "Lou's First Date," guest-starring veteran comic actress Florence Lake as the sweet octogenarian whom the newly single Lou escorts to an awards ceremony; "Father's Day," wherein pompous WJM anchorman Ted Baxter Ted Knight is reluctantly reunited with his long-absent dad, Robert Liam Dunn; "The Dinner Party," the season's annual "Mary's terrible parties" episode, featuring a pre-Happy Days Henry Winkler as Mary's date, Steve Waldman; "I Gave at the Office," a tour de force for Gavin MacLeod as WJM newswriter Murray Slaughter, who frets and fumes when his daughter Tammi Bula takes a part-time job at the station; "Better Late...That's a Pun...Than Never," in which a red-faced Mary is suspended from her job after capriciously writing a humorous obituary for Minneapolis' oldest citizen -- who unexpectedly kicks the bucket; and the unforgettable, and imminently self-explanatory, "Ted Baxter Meets Walter Cronkite." In addition to the aforementioned Emmy awards for the episodes "The Lars Affair" and "The Lou and Edie Story," gold statuettes were doled out to series regulars Mary Tyler Moore and Cloris Leachman. The Mary Tyler Moore Show wrapped up its fourth season as America's ninth most popular network series.

    Mary Tyler Moore in 1974!

    It is now 1974, and Mary Tyler Moore has been associate TV producer at WJM TV for four years. The cast is well-known now, so stories are more interesting. Mary has to deal with the separation of her boss, Lou Grant, and his wife, Edie, which affects the office. She still has her crazy neighbor, Rhoda, and landlady, Phyllis, who keep things exciting at home. Story lines include Ted, the newsman, running for political office; Mary and Lou taking writing classes at night school; and miscellaneous dating disasters, all hilarious. Just looking at the "cool" clothing and apartment decor is enough to make anyone laugh! My daughters and I have already watched the entire series twice, and intend to watch certain episodes over and over again. Enjoy!

    Real Life Humor

    This show contains some of the best writing ever on television. Every episode has humor that is insightful and to which you can relate. I keep waiting for the rest of the series to come out on dvd. Every episode sparkles with wit. Watching will turn your black mood ring bright blue as tension and stress are banished by laughter.

    So many good laughs

    A wonderful mix of actors who knew how to read their lines. Outstanding writers who could do stories that didn't need four letter words. I watch them often because today's TV is not worth my time. Would like to see the rest of the seasons on DVD as well as those of Bob Newhart.

    The best TV series in history!

    In my humble opinion, the best and funniest TV series in history! My goal is to get all 7 seasons - I believe it was 7- on DVD. Truly a way to escape into a more innocent time and have a great laugh! Wonderful stress-reducer indeed. Thanks Mary, Lou, Ted, Maury, and company!
